I've always thought it would a lot of fun for a cruise line to launch a ship with absolutely no advance publicity at all. The first passengers to board on the first sailing would be the first people to know anything about the clever new designs and features. Although the mystery would probably create an enormous amount of buzz, it would probably never work.
But that's almost what Celebrity would like to do with Celebrity Edge. The ship doesn't sail until December 18, 2018 - a year and nine months away - but they have to open it for sale, so they have to release some of the information.
Today they told the world about some of the concepts, and a few of the major features, but they're holding out and there will still be a lot to reveal over the next 21 months.
The complete story appeared in the March 13 edition of Cruise News Daily.
